A 45-year-old actress from Germany has been injecting herself with Bacillus F, a 3.5 million-year-old bacteria from the Siberian permafrost, to stop the effects of aging.
The woman, who goes by the moniker Manoush, describes herself as a “human lab rat” for being the first person in the world to inject herself with Bacillus F, an ancient bacteria whose cells apparently show no signs of aging. She has been doing it for the past three months and claims it is already making her look and feel younger than her age.
The bacteria’s DNA was unlocked in 2015 by a team of researchers who claim that unlike other cells in nature, Bacillus F cells show no signs of aging and could be the key to eternal youth. Manoush has apparently taken these claims to heart and has been injecting the bacteria into her bloodstream.
If you’re wondering how an obscure actress from Munich, Germany, managed to get her hands on the Bacillus F wonder bacteria, she was apparently been getting sufficient samples from the head of the Geocryology Department at Moscow State University, Dr. Anatoli Brouchkov, himself.
